He is Editor at Large of Notre Dame Review and taught at the University of Notre Dame for forty years before his retirement. He is also a Life Member of Clare Hall, Cambridge. His most recent books are a three-volume Collected Poems (Shearsman) and the novel Different Kinds of Music (also Shearsman). Two volumes of essays on Matthias's work have been published: Word Play Place: Essays on the Poetry of John Matthias, ed. by Robert Archambeau, and The Salt Companion to the Poetry of John Matthias, ed. by Joe Francis Doerr. A volume of performance pieces, Six Short Plays, is scheduled from BlazeVOX in June.

A longtime member of Southern Graphics Council International, she is a board member. 

She teaches printmaking.
